Islam Gets Special Treatment by Dennis Prager from

743899eb-17b7-4a88-a2ae-87ddad115900.png Since 9/11, the Western world's academic, media, political elites have done their best to portray Islam in a favorable light, treating it very differently from all other religions.

There is no war between Israel and a nonexistent nation by Gerard Henderson from

Contrary to O’Connor’s editorialising, there is no war between Israel and Palestine. Nor has such an entity as Palestine ever existed. Jordan was in control of the area between Israel and the Jordan River between the creation of the State of Israel in 1948 and the 1967 war, which saw Israel occupy the area. In almost two decades Jordan did not establish a state of Palestine. ...

The Western Media and Muslim-on-Muslim Violence by Raymond Ibrahim from

840.png Western mainstream media enable Islamic terrorism by employing an arsenal of semantic games, key phrases, convenient omissions, and moral relativism to portray such violence as a product of anything and everything—political and historical grievances, "Islamophobia," individual insanity, poverty and ignorance, territorial disputes—not Islam. ...

Countering the Big Lie by Naomi Ragen from

There was a time during one of the so-called intifadas (forgive me for not remembering if it was the first, second, or in-between; all that savagery and murder runs together seamlessly in my head these days) that the Palestinians claimed that the Jews had no connection at all to Jerusalem, or the land of Israel. A statement like that, similar to denying the Holocaust, is so insane it leaves one sputtering in wordless confusion. It’s like being asked to prove you aren’t dead. ...

Those “Spontaneous” demonstrations by David Oman from

muslim-brotherhood2.png The often violent demonstrations that rocked Europe and the US during Protective Edge looked very much like the spontaneous outrage of Muslim communities in the West • The truth, however, is that they were arranged and engineered by the Global Muslim Brotherhood, a well organized but far from representative organization • Their success lies not only in organizing these hate-fests but in gaining the ear of Western governments as representative of the "moderate Muslim" faction - especially in the Obama administration • An insightful interview with Steven Merley, Muslim Brotherhood exper ...
